by the federal open market committee to support the economy. in addition, i will discuss important economic challenges our country faces as we close out 2012 and move into 2013, in particular the challenge of putting federal government finances on a sustainable path and the longer run while avoiding actions that would endanger the economic recovery in the near term. the economy is continuing to recover from the financial crisis and recession, but the pace of the recovery has been slower than fomc participants and others had hoped or anticipated when i spoke here last, three years ago. indeed, since the recession trough in 2009, growth in real gdp has averaged only a little more than 2% per year. similarly, the job market has improved over the past three years, but at a slow pace. the unemployment rate, which peaked at 10% in the fall of 2009, has since come down 2%, to just below 8%. this is a welcome decline, but it has taken a long time to achieve the progress, and the unemployment level is still well above its level prior to the onset of the recession and the level that our colleagues an
have seen the worst of this economy, think again. another recession could be just around the corner regardless if congss solves the fiscal cliff crisis or not. one of the top economists, martin feldstein of harvard unersity, joins me now. >> it's good to be back. cheryl: you were with ben bernanke last week. there were two questioners talking to mr. ben bernanke. he has been very vocal in his call for congress to fix the fiscal cliff. you are a little bit more negative than your colleagues. why is that? >> well, what he said is if we gover the fiscal cliff, the economy will drop into a recession and the fed does not have the ability to stop that. now the question is, what if we do not hold the fiscal cliff but some of the other things that are being talked about, like the president's plan, what would happen then? the president's plan to raise taxes on high income individuals, cutting deductions for high income individuals, raising the corporate tax ate read a long list of that sort. eliminating the payroll tax holiday. that would take about 2% out of the gdnext year. we are struggli
, we had huge surpluses because of the strong economy over the 1990's and deficit-reduction plans put in place over the 1990's. the government had the choice to spend that on programs, or returned it to tax payers, and the bush administration decided to return the money to taxpayers. over the following year's tax rates were lower. it was renewed in 2010 in a tax deal between president obama and congressional republicans at a time when the economy was weak and the feeling was they could not take an increase in taxes. host: what was the desired effect and did it happen? he called the desired effect was to give people more of their income back, and that happened, as wealthy people got more income back, more moderate income earners got some back. one of the questions is how it effects economic growth, and it is an unresolved area of economic research. did it did help the economy -- did it help the economy? it is hard to say. we had a good economy in the 2000's before the crisis. now we have a huge crisis. on balance, it probably did not help that much. host: can you calculate if jobs were
a lot of -- >> he's got a cleaner slate than four years ago with an economy. >> start building the sub structure to show actual progress. a debate in the white house is, like, it's a long term thing, health care, for instance, but showing results any time soon to people in need. well, that was the long term game. of course, the stimulus was the short term game, but, still, americans don't feel the effects. some of it is marketing, some of it is real, of a lot of what obama's done. i think the key now is, because of the re-election, he'll actually have time for americans just to go, well, i feel a little better, and it's substantive, it's real. my health insurance -- >> that was true of clinton, and david said in the conversation that clinton adopt seize the reigns of a -- didn't seize the reigns of a second term. >> seized something else instead. [laughter] [applause] >> that was good. >> the whole year before wasting 1997 before the scandal broke will. >> welfare reform -- >> asking dave because we're in biography here. i'm fascinated by them figuring out who they were in childhood. y
. it is is sapping the ability of the american economy to grow and it is topping -- zapping the ability of the average american to rise. until we look at the major core issues that are making the u.s. more attractive to business, we will go back to the fiscal cliff discussion over and over again. unless we can get our economy really moving and growing in the long run, these will just occur over and over again. we identified eight areas, as you mentioned, where we find there is broad consensus where we believe these things would really move the needle in a reasonable time frame, two, three, four years. there is some real bipartisan support. the first is the need of a sustainable budget compromise. that is widely accepted by all. two, easing on highly skilled immigration now. yes, when a broader immigration reform, but this is one of the abilities to really move rapidly to inject skills and to the economy and fill jobs badly need to be filled to sustain our growth. it is not a long-term solution and there, but it is a critical step we can take now that would really move the needle. we hav
that are behind these numbers are relate primarily to the economy and as we all know the economy is still sluggish but there is improvement. >> aaa estimates that 40% of travelers left the day before thanksgiving and 36% returning today and 25% tomorrow. it could be a long journey home. this is what it looked like on the 405 on los angeles on the big get away day with traffic backed up for miles. and on thanksgiving morning as drivers headed out on i-10 east in beamont, texas. a husband and wife were killed and 100 injured and the trail of wreckage stretched for two miles. forecasters say more fog and snow in parts of the midwest and northeast could make it trougher getti tougher getting home after a long holiday weekend. >> reporter: again, as this afternoon goes on, we're going to see the traffic build on this road. about a 10% drop, alex, than they spent last year. >> michelle franzen there. here's a big question. will the weather cooperate for travelers out there? here with the travel forecast to answer that for us is dylan. >> most areas will cooperate. you're just dealing with the traffic as
government it will pay for, regardless of the impact on jobs or the economy, or america's standing in the world. these are the ones who have recklessly ignored the fact that we can't keep running trillion dollar deficits every year and throw a tantrum if someone suggests that maybe the taxpayers shouldn't keep subsidizing ever last program washington ever dreamed up. they are reckless and ideological approach threatens our very future. and anyone who is serious about solving the problems we face should ignore all of that starting with the president. megyn: meantime some of the president's supporters unleashed and ad blitz targeting key lawmakers reportedly spending close to $300,000 on an ad buy that talks about increasing taxes but leaving spending alone. here is part of that. >> how do we move our country forward and reduce the deficit, by creating jobs and growing our economy not by cutting programs that families rely on most. megyn: join me now is stu varney, who is host of varney & company. and chris stirewalt. you have all the unions unleashing and ad blitz to target the home
represented their interests. >> we also have a terrible economy. a weak economy is the only reason they're in the game. i'm going to end this conversation because i don't think it's been resolved, erin, and i -- erin, you made a good case for younger people. that's the future of every party. go younger. i agree with that. the problem is they have to decide ideologically can they compete for senate seats in pennsylvania, maybe not massachusetts, but new jersey, connecticut, new england? are they going to give you up a portion of the country and say, we're going to make our votes in the south? it seems to me that's a problem they've got right there. they've given up both coasts, by the way. that's my argument, not yours. robert, thank you for coming in tonight. happy thanksgiving. you should be in cars heading home. erin, you've been doing great this year. great coverage. >>> coming up, republicans aren't the only ones fighting among themselves. some progressives are warning president obama, they don't like this debt reduction deal, they'll let people hear. so it begins. also the republic
saying this fiscal cliff is bad for the economy. let's work together now. president obama says no than thanks. this killed me. nothing changed since december of 2010. president obama talked about losing in the midterms and said the worst thing we can do is high inemployment and slow economic growth is raise taxes on anybody so support me in extension of the bush tax cu cuts. nothing has changed about the economy now but the economic growth projections are worse. this is not a great way to make good policy. >> kimberly: that is their campaign slogan. they don't make concessions. they have to do something serious about cutting back on spending. coming back in with the entitlement. without that, it won't make a difference if they raise taxe taxes. taking out the bush tax cuts won'tbe make it go away. >> eric: the food stamp recipients. the latest number. $47 million. more than alabama, connecticut, delaware. minnesota, nebraska. nevada. new hampshire. new mexico. north dakota, oklahoma, oregon, rhode island, south dakota, utah, vermont, west virginia and wyoming combined. populations of t
doesn't matter the economy if you don't ever have life -- >> why should a choice person vote for the continuation of this republican platform which says from the moment of conception that unborn child or fetus is a citizen with rights of property, life, and liberty? >> there are plenty of people that are pro-choice republicans that are out there just like there are plenty of pro-life democrats out there because they're going to pick their own preferences. i would disagree this party is demographically falling apart when a 49%/51% election just occurred. you look at the house of representatives and you have this large percentage of republicans there. we still are a very divided nation. >> it's going to be about 47%, and most americans voted in the house races, most americans did vote for democrats. because of gerrymandering your party got a big majority, but that's because of gerrymandering. >> it's because the democrats waste a lot of votes in big city democratic districts. 99% of the vote. >> i want to say something very important about abortion. most women who have abortion
economy at the most important time of the year for retail stores. as the president uses similar scare tactics to bully republicans into a deal press secretary jay carney today made clear where the president himself simply refuses to compromise. >> there are issues that need to be resolved that we have been very clear about, both the presence interest and willingness to compromise, but also his clear insistence that he will not sign an extension of bush era tax cuts for the top 2% lou: a congressional budget office analysis shows that allowing the bush tax cuts to expire on upper income americans would generate approximately $82 billion a year or enough to run the government for eight and a half days. eight and a half days. meanwhile, the list of republicans who are reversing themselves on their anti-tax pledges is growing. former gang of six member publicly broke ranks last week after fellow gang member defected from norquist in july when he agreed to a tax increases in exchange for a grand bargain on the deficit. the other republicaa gang member, senator mike ray powell reportedly in
in washington, but with lawmakers haven't heard from a very important sector of the u.s. economy. well, now in a very rare move several major corporations are wading publicly into the fight over the looming so-called fiscal cliff, and they're not holding back. elizabeth macdonald is with the fox business network. okay, liz, so who are these corporations, and what exactly are they saying? >> good to be with you, arthel. it's walmart, cvs and wall greens. walmart or is basically saying, look, customers don't need the uncertainty over tax increases, and let's get to cvs caremark because these two drug store chains are basically making rare public policy statements that we've never seen before from these companies. they're urging washington to avoid the fiscal cliff. cvs caremark is essentially saying, look, our customers are hard working american families, they make decisions on the budget. they've been faced with, basically, persistent high unemployment, fragile economic growth, and they want to know that d.c. is working on their behalf. so and that was also the same sentiment that you heard
, they spent a lot of time thinking about the future. so in the next four years who can i trust on the economy, on social issues and foreign policy. and we live in a country that is even pli divided politically and we have close elections. our victory in 2008 was a landslide. it was clear this election was going to be closer, fwiven the economy and divisions in the country. with that being said, we still won electoral college, maybe not a landslide but a clear majority. our popular vote is 3% which is a healthy margin. and i think the reason we won is people understood where we had been economically. all of you have lived through the recession. this is not something that is an academic theory. everyone painfully lived through the recession. we are beginning to recover from that. the economy has created jobs over 5 fnt 5 million jobs which our economy is far too week but the electorate said i'm beginning to feel some progress. does that mean i'm satisfied? of course not. but i'm beginning to feel some progress and i think people thought it was a risk to go back and try economic policies that le
don't believe that's going to help the economy very much. however, the president is going to do the social justice thing no matter what. in texas, the government does not believe that redistributing income is its responsibility. all does not believe that you should micromanage the lives of its citizens. if you are dumb enough to ride a motorcycle without a mel helmet and you wind up in a cemetery it's your call. trust me nobody is banning 16-ounce soft drinks in waco. again it goes back to everybody has a gun. in california, and the federal government if koop after -- if california and the federal government keep spending the way it's been spending both will go bankrupt before they leave office. very true. tax scheme bubbling under the surface so-called wealth tax, in france, spain, iceland, switzerland they taxed net word of wealthy people every year. doesn't matter if you earn anything, or you get income or dividends, doesn't matter. if you have assets, house, gold, car, whatever, those governments are going to take some of that. uber liberals in america want to do the same th
, but we have been around the south to understand -- th would be a great driver for our economy. we are over performing the rest of the world right now. if we can actually -- for the business community and the american people say we have our fiscal house in order for a 20 period and will still be able to invest in education and technology and rearch -- this will create the conditns for our growth to be stronger. this is going to get harry. these are big stakes -- the debt ceiling is concern to everyone. it is more amorphous for the average person -- this means if congress does not act, everybody in the country will pay more taxes. think about that -- $2,000 of the pockets of most americans, what that will do to consumption, confidence and small businesses -- this could not be more serious. i remain confident because t stakes are so high. we have a firm deadline. we wilmake some progress. i think what we need to do -- let's go for the big deal, let's go for something that we can say for a 10-20 year period, our country is on the way to sustainable fiscal path. the on the way it gets

[ crying ] there is a gun shop owner cope reynolds who is taking a different approach. he said if you're an obama supporter you cannot buy guns. you're not allowed to. he put a sign up on his place of business saying, if you voted for barack obama your business is not welcome. you have proven you're not responsible enough to own a firearm. well, abc affiliate talked to this genius who is so responsible and figured all these things out to g
come to a close. to many americans are out of work. our national debt exceeds the size of the economy and threatens to derail our children's future. as a mother, this is a constant worry. yet today we will honor the thanksgiving tradition with wishes of peace and grace. we will pray for those less fortunate. we will think of service members away from home and give thanks for them and their families. our hearts will go out to the families without power after hurricane sandy. we will look ahead to the holidays and a new year. that same spirit of optimism that brings us together today should inspire us all year round. that is why here, in washington, d.c., republicans have reached out to president obama in the hope of working together to help our economy grow and solve the debt that threatens our children's future. the clock is ticking. one month from now, unless congress and the president take action, the current tax rates will would expire and we will experience the largest tax increase in u.s. history. amid so much economic suffering, raising taxes would have a devastating impact on o
to wreck the economy. and i think there are a lot of republicans that are saying what a few of us were saying after the election. bill kristol said it. so tell me again, why are we fighting and risking our majorities, protecting billionaires that are hedge fund guys who are paying 14% tax rates? >> walk two blocks from this street, fifth avenue between this building and 57th street, and the storefronts on fifth avenue. anybody who can go into those storefronts and purchase things in those storefronts are not going to be damaged by these tax reforms that we've been talking about. they're not going to be damaged. >> by the way, the storefronts aren't going to be damaged by raising capital gains rates from 15% to 20%. i want everybody to be rich. i'm a capitalist. i want everybody to make $250,000. barack obama says that's rich. whatever. i want everybody -- i love people being successful in this country, but again, if you're making billions of dollars, again, there's something immoral, mika, about these people paying 14%, 15%, 16% on their taxes because the tax rates are the way they are
it will take a back seat to the economy for now. he did return to new york on thursday to review the recovery effort on staten island. climate change and hurricane sandy brought naomi klein to town, too. you may know her as the author of "the shock doctrine: the rise of disaster capitalism." readers of two influential magazines to put naomi klein high on the list of the 100 leading public thinkers in the world. she is now reporting for a new book and documentary on how climate change can spur political and economic transformation. she also has joined with the environmental writer and activist bill mckibben in a campaign launched this week called "do the math." more on that shortly. naomi klein, welcome. >> thank you so much. >> first, congratulations on the baby. >> thank you so much. >> how old now? >> he is five months today. >> first child? >> my first child, yeah. >> how does a child change the way you see the world? >> well it lengthens your timeline definitely. i'm really immersed in climate science right now because of the project i'm working on is related to that. so you know there ar
to look at things we can do to flatten the code, to grow the economy, why would you tell people they have to pay more, small businesses, individuals, before -- >> make them pay more by getting hatch the deductions. >> it makes it flatter and fairer and supports economic growth and stops picking winners and losers in some cases. we've been here in the '80s and put the revenue first. said, hey, we'll agree to the spending cuts that come down the road and most never materialized. we had the deficit reduction in graham rudman. >> we know the rates we had under clinton we had the best economy of the past 50 years. we can go back to those rates. >> i want to talk about both of your parties. brad woodhouse, one thing we have learned is when barack obama is on the ballot, there is a coalition that helps democrats win a lot of elections. when he's not on the ballot, the one time that he was head of the party but not on the ballot, the party got shellacked. >> we were facing 10% unemployment. we had this debate over health care. one of the things we learned in this are the lessons that candidates a

their input how to grow the economy and how to deal with that looming fiscal cliff. they are saying taxes will go up if congress does not act. >>> still on the scene of a fire that may have been intentionally started inside a classroom at alameda high school. brian flores joins us with more on why the fire was considered suspicious. >> reporter: it looks like police investigators are here now continuing to gather any evidence they can from this suspicious early morning fires. now let's go to video we shot earlier this morning. according to investigators, the fire started roughly around 3:00 a.m. this morning and one of the classrooms had flames coming out of it from a nearby window and they quickly put it out but what they found was one of the windows was opened and it leads officials to believe it is suspicious in nature. >> we had a fire alarm at the alameda high school and we came here and found a fire and put the fire out and the fire is suspicious in nature. >> reporter: now in terms of damage several books were burned and a window was damaged. police believe there may have been smal
facing lbgt people. and i said, i don't know, the economy or jobs -- jobs and health care. and they were like, you know, what are the lbgt issues? you know, these are the issues. we actually cut across every demographic status and that means that in many ways, every issue that is facing other people in society are the very issues that we are facing, too. the ones that have been the big issues, maybe a little bit more unique to some of the specific issues. but they are not the only ones. if we can make ourselves visible, obviously it is not inclusive of the entire community. he beat out a whole swath of this. how many people are married? even in the broader general society versus people who aren't married. that is even a smaller number for same-sex couples. we have a lot of work to do and a lot of discrimination of people continue to face. >> i wanted to talk about thinking about the future of marriage equality. however it goes forward through the states. there is very much a way that that could be mobilized for an aggressive agenda. i wondered if he wanted to make any connections between
and others, are they getting the kind of training they need in this economy? >> i think it's available. i think we can do better with it. there are some facts like completion rates for gi bill education are not as high as they ought to be. i think we can structure some of those programs a little better so individuals who start school have the kind of support mechanisms to be built to finish either an associate's degree or bachelor's degree, if that is their goal. but we can do better at that. there are well-intentioned programs that are not quite as efficient or effective at this point. >> the wharton school of business and the university of iowa, the university of iowa offers in-state tuition to returning veterans. i ask the president what's the impact on the campus? he said beyond my ability to describe. i could have used that kind of mentoring and leadership at one. -- one point as a graduate of iowa. when these young and women come back and enter an academic or training program of some kind, we need this. >> i cannot agree more. city college of new york, mike alma mater, we had a spec
a month if they can't face an agreement. the health of the american economy and maybe if it goes down to the wire the fiscal cliff story will receive 1/10 theed my ya attention as the scandalous saga of dave and paula and john and jill. joining us now here the washington is jane hall. bob cusack, managing editor of the capital nooup the hill. and amy argetsinger. why has it become synonymous with bore dom? >> well, there's no sex with it. that's the bottom line. this story is wild. the petraeus story has gone in a lot of different directions. first he resigns. then we find out why. then we find out about the other woman. the inappropriate e-mails. >> you're saying that barack obama meeting with john boehner and mitch mcconnell doesn't quite get readers as excited? >> not as titillating. >> this is what the election was fought over and yet i have the impression that a lot of the country is yawning but really many of the journalists covering the story are oning. >> there's a story about low how the mighty are falling. privacy, security, while covering the sex. >> are you suggesting that
these people make a decent wage and possibly improve the economy? >> listen, i think the numbers are mostly right but i think the numbers are different from that. according to the numbers i've seen, as i said before, every walmart employee could get that raise to $25,000 a year. every single one of them, and walmart would be profitable without raising prices. walmart charges as much as they canner they possibly can. that's the nature of being in business. they gave their employees as little as possible as they can exploit them without rights of knowledge to unionize and walmart is hugely profitable. i don't think the customers are going to end up paying anything more at all. what is simply going to happen is walmart will make a little less profit. >> cenk: congressman alan grayson, good to have a progressive fighter back in congress. thank you for joining us and at walmart, sticking up for people as well. thank you very much. >> you're welcome. >> cenk: when we come back, i'm going to go aggressive progressive because i haven't been aggressive enough yet in this show. we're going to take on
coming. health care reform, affordable care act. so they are coming. a better idea in this economy, and everyone should know that. number three,the president who claims he must have a balanced approach only talks about raising taxes. this to be asking a question, what spending cuts are you offering along with this request for tax increases? and let's see a real plan. that is the discussion we need to have not negotiating on taxes lou: and to his credit, the speaker has been -- well,he has not been heard from. it seems somehow the preferred course to watching senators gramm and mccain and chambliss, for crying out loud, out there making all sorts of noises. lou: in that -- the media does love to cover them because in the end -- lou: i'm not complaining. but in the end, what is really growing -- g going on, the white house is going to have to getto de. that is going very slowly. little progress, but those are the players that matter. the noise from the side shows is ju the only thing to cover at the moment. >> let me ask you, at any reason and this possibility that the president is a
on rebuilding the middle class and strengthening our economy by investing in jobs, not cuts. on the other side, conservatives say it's not a game changer because from unions, this is really nothing new. >> the fact they are publicly saying what they have been privately saying is helpful the american people understand where obama's intransigence comes from, but nothing's changed. >> they negotiated details this week of the grand fiscal cliff compromise that democrats and republicans hope to reach. lawmakers back in town neex week, and there's a meeting loosely scheduled in the white house against top democrats and republicans in congress with president obama. dagen? dagen: thank you so much, happy thanksgiving, my man. down in washington, d.c., but here in studio with my, monica crowely, author of "what the bleep just happened?" how do they have influence over the white house and represent in terms of the private job market a tiny sliver of employees in the country? >> it really is incredible. we've seen a hemorrhaging away from the many, many past decades. you're right to say their influence i
that the climate is changing, do you really think that government can redesign the entire global economy, not just in the united states but in the entire world, in a more rational way? i think you're expecting too much from politics. >> not at all, matt. i'll give you just one example. and there are a legion of examples, by building up the c.a.f.e. standards, the miles per hour the cars are to get. we are burning significantly less petroleum because of what the obama administration has done to raise those standards. for every time we double the mileage requirement for cars, we are eliminating a significant amount of co2 that goes into the atmosphere. that's something government did, did it, you know, in a forthright fashion, and it is making a difference. >> okay. government put a man on the moon. government is not essentially incompetent. that's ridiculous argument. when we start taking steamship rides across the polar cap, i think you should admit something is going on a little different than, as you put it, weather changes. there ain't going to be a north pole anymore. where is santa claus goin
